In this video, Luke Rudkowski goes over the latest Russia hysteria with Donald Trump which is induced by the left, deep state and main stream media. We go over how these assertions are wrong but also should be disappointing to any Donald Trump supporter since there a major break in his campaign promise.
In the midst of all the chaos in Paris last night, in which the death toll has seemingly been trimmed to as low as 127, there certainly seems to be some noteworthy anomalies to be observed. The first one being the discovery of passports identifying the attackers. This is creepily reminiscent of 9/11 in which an alleged hijacker’s passport had miraculously fluttered from out of the cockpit, survived the massive jet fuel 1700*F pyro blast explosion and subsequent collapse of the twin towers in which the concrete was completely pulverized into a mega dust cloud reigning down and covering all of Manhattan. Yet the passport was magically and conveniently discovered on the streets intact on the same day! Talk about a whacked up conspiracy theory. They apparently think we’re all stupid enough to believe this crap. As if terrorism rule #1 is to make sure you have your passport handy before you attack.
There are conflicting reports about the location of a Syrian passport being found on one of the assailers of the attack. On one hand, French police said the document was found “near the body of one of the attackers” at the scene of the massacre in the Paris Bataclan concert hall which belonged to an asylum seeker who registered on a Greek island in October. Nikos Toskas, the Greek minister for citizen protection issued a statement: “We confirm that the Syrian passport holder came through the Greek island of Leros on October 3 where he was registered under EU rules.”
However, Reuters citing sources close to the investigation said the passport was found near the body of one of the suicide bombers who blew himself up on Friday near a Paris soccer stadium.
In addition to the confirmed Syrian bomber, the police have also identified a second terrorist from the Paris attack.
But Mouzalas noted that the number of Europeans joining extremist groups in the Middle East was far higher.
“The opposite is happening. They leave from here and go over there,” he said.
We now come to perhaps the most disturbing anomaly as pointed out by International Business Times. More than 115 people were killed during a hostage crisis before police SWAT teams stormed the Bataclan theater in central Paris at around 1 a.m. Saturday local time, freeing an unknown number of victims and killing three terror suspects, according to a live TV broadcast by CNN. The Paris SWAT team waited around two hours before entering the building, despite tweets from hostages suggesting that the terrorists were killing people indiscriminatelyIt was not immediately clear how many hostages died before the rescue operation took place, but it’s likely the length of time the police waited will be the subject of scrutiny in the aftermath of the attacks, according to an expert in hostage situations and counterterrorism. “In this case, the police tactical teams should have just gone in straight away, using the quickest preliminary plan they had,” said former Army Special Forces Col. Steve Bucci, now director of the Center for Foreign and National Security Policy at the Heritage Foundation, a Washington, D.C., think tank. “With their high level of training they could have gone in and used their instincts to resolve this situation quickly.”
Why in the world would the SWAT team wait for 2 hours? Who is going to explain that? It’s as if the Bataclan theatre massacre was ALLOWED TO HAPPEN to maximize the casualties. All I’m saying is that there is much more happening than meets the eye and with these kinds of questions, the door is certainly open to give consideration to the whole entire false flag concept. Yes, real people have lost their lives and many people in America are highly sympathetic and praying for the people of Paris, and rightly so. Funny though, I don’t recall people on social media altering their profile pics with shades of the Russian flag when the passenger plane blew up over Egypt which killed MORE people. And I didn’t notice a single call to pray for the Russians. Oh, but I guess we are supposed to believe Russia is our enemy and France is our friend. What do you think?
PARIS France was rocked by multiple, near simultaneous attacks on entertainment sites around Paris on Friday evening and French media said at least 158 people were killed, including 118 hostages being held at the Paris Bataclan concert hall where 2 suspects are said to have been killed by police according to BFMTV. France News 24 is reporting that the terrorists threw explosives into the crowd as police raided the building. Police reportedly arrested one suspect who allegedly claimed to be with ISIS.
Vice President Joe Biden: “Our hearts are with Paris tonight…we stand together. We will never bow. We will never break.”
The Eiffel Tower has gone black and the French President is en route to the scene of the massacre at the concert venue.
France is a gun free zone. So perhaps this situation could have been averted or at the very least minimized if the people had the capacity to defend themselves with the right to bear arms/concealed carry.
The terrorist organization ISIS is known to promote its activities by exploiting the open nature of the Internet. This includes recruiting through social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and using sites like YouTube to publish propaganda videos.
It also make use of available Web services to guard its sites against cyberattacks and hide its locations.
According to information provided by anti-terrorist hacker group GhostSec, close to 40 pro-ISIS websites are using the services of a Silicon Valley company called CloudFlare. CloudFlare is a content delivery network that provides services to speed up websites and render them virtually immune to distributed denial of service, or DDS, cyberattacks that can overload websites to bring them offline.
Among the sites, 34 are for spreading propaganda, 4 are terrorist forums, and 2 offer technical services. A brief perusal of the sites showed they heap praise on ISIS, promote terrorist attacks, and some are used as chatrooms for extremists.
ISIS recruiters on social media often direct people to these websites, according to “WauchulaGhost,” a cyberoperations director with GhostSec.
GhostSec’s attempts to disrupt these sites have run into problems as ISIS recruiters have turned to Web services to block its efforts.
WauchulaGhost said CloudFlare hides the origin of the sites, and “with the site being ‘hidden’ it’s harder to be taken down, not only by us, but by our own government as well.”
Many online efforts used by ISIS go through open services, and this places providers of these services in a difficult spot. Sites like Google regularly index websites both good and bad, and ISIS terrorists can create new Facebook and Twitter accounts as quickly as they’re pulled offline.
According to CloudFlare spokeswoman Daniella Vallurupalli, they’re in a similar position. She said in an email that CloudFlare has more than a million customers, and close to 5,000 new sites register with its services each day.
GhostSec is an affiliate of the Anonymous hacker collective. GhostSec launches cyberattacks against ISIS recruiting websites, and occasionally passes information on planned terrorist attacks to government agencies.
WauchulaGhost said when they find information on threats, they forward it to the government, yet noted they “do not work for the gov in any way shape or form.”
“We do this as a free service to not only the USA but to all countries of the world. Ghost Security’s mission is to eliminate the online presence of the Islamic State extremist group,” he said.
Earlier this year, their information helped thwart a planned ISIS terrorist attack in Tunisia, and may have stopped a similar attack on New York City.
The work that GhostSec is doing is … making it harder for people to find ways to communicate with them. We are slowing down their communication process.
Some hacker groups that launch attacks against terrorist websites, however, have had conflicts with CloudFlare over its policy for websites that promote terrorism.
For example, CloudFlare was provided a list of terrorist sites, but its apparent practice is not to revoke service for sites based on content, unless it is ordered to by authorities. Vallurupalli said, “CloudFlare will comply with all valid U.S. court orders and we work with law enforcement authorities and honor valid legal requests.”
CloudFlare’s position was outlined in a Aug. 9, 2013, blog post from CloudFlare CEO Matthew Prince, which Vallurupalli referenced in response to questions about its policies.
“One of the greatest strengths of the United States is a belief that speech, particularly political speech, is sacred. A website, of course, is nothing but speech,” Prince stated.
CloudFlare has been accused of providing service to similar sites in the past. Prince’s response was, “A website is speech. It is not a bomb.”
Prince generally takes a strong stance against censorship, and seems to regard censorship of any kind as a slippery slope, which he prefers to avoid.
He also said CloudFlare does not monitor content of websites using its services, stating, “We do not believe that ‘investigating’ the speech that flows through our network is appropriate. In fact, we think doing so would be creepy.”
Between Speech and Violence
CloudFlare’s stance has concerned many hackers trying to fight digital terrorism. GhostSec, Anonymous, and other groups are launching cyberattacks against ISIS websites in efforts to stop ISIS from spreading its propaganda and recruiting new members.
From their vantage, which includes going toe-to-toe with ISIS recruiters online and at times monitoring terrorist online discussions, the websites used by ISIS aren’t just about speech, but the promotion of violence—and the consequence could be the loss of innocent lives.
Websites used by ISIS aren’t just about speech, but the promotion of violence.
The cyber-campaign, which they call “OpISIS,” runs into trouble when they find ISIS websites that have been rendered immune to their cyberattacks by using CloudFlare.
While CloudFlare doesn’t host the sites directly, WauchulaGhost notes some of the sites use “Always On Technology,” which means “even if the site goes offline, a cached copy is on CloudFlare’s servers.”
“If it stores cached content, isn’t it hosting as well?” WauchulaGhost stated.
CloudFlare also offers free services, but according to WauchulaGhost, security certificates (SSL certificates) used by many of the ISIS websites show it is using CloudFlare’s paid services.
WauchulaGhost noted they are seeing more and more about ISIS in the news, and shared their concerns that “if these sites remain up it will just cause more damage, more attacks.”
“The work that GhostSec is doing is slowing down this process,” WauchulaGhost said. “We are making it harder for people to find ways to communicate with them. We are slowing down their communication process.”
Thermonuclear missile launch near Los Angeles is final sign of World War III on the precipice… US, China and Russia all escalating covert attacks in run up to global war
(NaturalNews) “A mysterious bright light in the sky has sent Californians into panic,” reports the BBC. “Videos posted online show a bright flare rising high, before a wide, bright blue flash emerges in a cone shape. Many videos continue to track the light for several minutes.”
Last night, Californians immediately leapt to social media to propose their theories of the phenomenon, ranging from a nuclear missile attack to meteors. “Law agencies and news media in San Diego were flooded with calls about 6 p.m. from people reporting everything from a flare to a comet to a nuclear bomb in the western sky,” reports the San Diego Union Tribune.
Just a day earlier, the FAA had issued flight restrictions for the Los Angeles International Airport, denying aircraft access to one of the most frequent approach paths for international and domestic travel.
The official explanation is a lie
The “official” explanation of this event — and remember that “official” explanations are almost always cover stories — is that the U.S. Navy launched a test missile just because they “routinely” test missiles.
“Media in California confirmed that the light came from an unarmed Trident missile fired from the USS Kentucky navy submarine,” reports the BBC. While they call the missile “unarmed,” they fail to mention that the Trident missile normally carries a thermonuclear warhead. There’s also no way for the media to know whether this missile was really unarmed or not, as the sole source on that question is the U.S. Navy itself.
Apparently the media thinks the public is so incredibly stupid that they’ll believe the U.S. Navy has nowhere else to launch a test missile other than right next to Los Angeles. Somehow we’re supposed to believe the entire Pacific Ocean won’t work for such a test launch, so they have to launch it adjacent to the airport and thereby inconvenience commercial aviation traffic for an entire week.
Obviously, the official cover story is pure bunk. So what’s the real story behind this? It all has to do with China and the covert war that’s already underway between China, the US and Russia.
China’s military submarines are a huge threat to U.S. national security
To get up to speed on what’s really happening, read this report from the Congressional Research Service (PDF) found at http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/row/RL33153.pdf
Authored by Ronald O’Rourke, Specialist in Naval Affairs, and just released on Sep. 21, 2015, the report is entitled, “China Naval Modernization: Implications for U.S. Navy Capabilities.”
The report states:
China is building a modern and regionally powerful navy with a limited but growing capability for conducting operations beyond China’s near-seas region. Observers of Chinese and U.S. military forces view China’s improving naval capabilities as posing a potential challenge in the Western Pacific to the U.S. Navy’s ability to achieve and maintain control of blue-water ocean areas in wartime — the first such challenge the U.S. Navy has faced since the end of the Cold War.
China’s naval modernization effort encompasses a broad array of platform and weapon acquisition programs, including anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBMs), anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCMs), submarines, surface ships, aircraft, and supporting C4ISR (command and control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) systems.
The most important section of this report, in my assessment, is this description of China’s ship-killing ballistic missiles:
China is fielding an ASBM, referred to as the DF-21D, that is a theater-range ballistic missile equipped with a maneuverable reentry vehicle (MaRV) designed to hit moving ships at sea. DOD states that China continues to field an ASBM based on a variant of the CSS-5 (DF-21) MRBM that it began deploying in 2010. This missile provides the PLA the capability to attack aircraft carriers in the western Pacific. The CSS-5 Mod 5 has a range exceeding 1,500 km [about 810 nm] and is armed with a maneuverable warhead.
China, in other words, has weapons capable of destroying U.S. aircraft carriers, destroyers and other ships. The 1,500 km range is key because it allows a very wide operational range.
Just recently in August, the Chinese and Russians held their largest naval joint exercise in history as a way to “counter U.S. influence in Asia.” As reported by Collapse.news:
The Russian and Chinese navies are set to hold their largest joint exercises ever, featuring scores of warships, hundreds of troops and an amphibious landing, in what appears to be a deepening of ties meant to counter a rising U.S. military presence in Asia.
In September, Chinese warships were spotted operating near the coast of Alaska. This was reported across the mainstream media, including in the Wall Street Journal in an article entitled, “Five Chinese Navy Ships Are Operating in Bering Sea off Alaska.”
Fox News also covered the same story: “5 Chinese warships spotted off Alaska coast during President Obama’s visit.”
In response to that territorial provocation, the U.S. Navy sent the USS Lassen destroyer to within 12 nautical miles of China’s newly-constructed military bases in the Spratly Islands.
China’s communist government openly condemned the act as a provocation of war. From the Straits Times:
China claims most of the South China Sea and on Oct 9 its Foreign Ministry warned that Beijing would “never allow any country to violate China’s territorial waters and airspace in the Spratly Islands, in the name of protecting freedom of navigation and overflight.”
Secret space weapon attacks on China’s industrial infrastructure
This is all on top of the Pentagon’s secret space weapon attacks on China’s industrial infrastructure.
As I wrote on August 17 of this year, Natural News was informed by mainland Chinese dissidents that they believe the string of mysterious industrial explosions such as the massive Tianjin explosion was caused by kinetic strikes from orbital platform weapons operated by the United States.
China then retaliated by covertly destroying a U.S. weapons depot in Tokyo, using old-school sabotage techniques. Two additional industrial explosions in China soon followed.
Taiwan surrenders to China with insane “One China” admission by President Ma
China’s war of aggression is also in high gear on the geopolitical side, with China pressuring Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou to publicly state yesterday that Taiwan is now part of China!
A massive cultural backlash in Taiwan is now surging, as most of the country’s citizens do not want to be part of communist China. Taiwan’s DPP party is rapidly rising to prominence on the platform of Taiwan as a sovereign nation, but China remains in an aggressive military stance, always threatening Taiwan with an armed invasion if Taiwan attempts to “secede” from China. (Taiwan’s GMT party, which is a “pro-China” party, has been plagued by an endless stream of scandals and corruption.)
From Channel News Asia: “Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou emphasised the island must continue to uphold the 1992 Consensus with China’s Communist Party in order to promote cross-strait relations and development, as he marked the 22nd anniversary of the historic talks between Taipei and Beijing in Singapore.”
Taiwan is a critical strategic island for U.S. influence over the Pacific naval theater of operations. Taiwan’s airports and military basis provide key strategic locations for staging U.S. aircraft and even bombers if conflict breaks out with China.
As you ponder all this, keep in mind that Taiwan’s media giants have all been infiltrated and taken over by communist China. The Taiwan media is now China’s state-run media. Only small, independent websites can be trusted to report the truth.
The Trident missile launch near Los Angeles was a warning shot against China in a last-ditch effort to prevent all-out war
The upshot of all this is that the U.S. and China have been engaged in a covert war for quite some time, and that covert war has escalated month by month, even as the official state-run news organizations of both nations have denied any war is happening at all.
Last night’s test launch of the Trident missile over Orange County was staged near a high population area for a tactical reason: To have as many witnesses (and videos) as possible, sending a very visible warning message to China that says, “We can destroy you if you don’t back off.”
The Trident missile, built by Lockheed Martin, is a thermonuclear missile system (Fleet Ballistic Missile) with a range of at least 4,000 nautical miles. See the Trident missile page on the U.S. Navy website. Just one Trident missile launched from somewhere in the Pacific Ocean could devastate China with a nuclear strike on Beijing.
The U.S. Navy’s “showcasing” of the Trident missile near Los Angeles is a $31 million billboard that tells China, “Don’t f–k with us.”
Nobody in the mainstream media is report this; probably because, with a few exceptions, they are mostly clueless, brain-dead propagandists who know nothing about international geopolitics and the real state of conflict in our world. Also, they are ordered what to write by the U.S. government regime in exactly the same way China’s “journalists” are ordered what to write by the Chinese regime.
Right now, the United States and China are in an undeclared state of war. China stands ready to strike the USA with nuclear warheads or high altitude EMP weapons that would destroy the U.S. power grid and cause 90% casualties across the unprepared population. Legendary American journalist Ted Koppel has even written a book about this entitled Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath.
China and Russia preparing massive first strike against America
Many people believe that China and Russia are working together to prepare for a massive first strike against the United States that would cripple its defenses and economy. Following that first strike, a land invasion would commence using Russian troops.
Supporting this theory, Russian submarines have been spotted near undersea internet cables in an obvious effort to document their whereabouts so that the cables can be instantly severed, unleashing a devastating blow to the U.S. economy, Wall Street and even military communications. “Russian submarines and spy ships are aggressively operating near the vital undersea cables that carry almost all global Internet communications, raising concerns among some American military and intelligence officials that the Russians might be planning to attack those lines in times of conflict,” reports WND.com. ” In times of tension or conflict, the ultimate Russian hack on the United States could involve severing the fiber-optic cables at some of their hardest-to-access locations to halt the instant communications on which the West’s governments, economies and citizens have grown dependent.”
At the same time a new Russian “drone sub” has been created that can strike U.S. coastal cities and harbors with nuclear weapons. Writing on NationalSecurity.news, Jon Dougherty states, “According to officials, the developmental unmanned underwater vehicle, or UUV, when it is deployed, will be outfitted with megaton-class nuclear warheads that can destroy key ports used by U.S. nuclear-armed and powered submarines like Kings Bay, Georgia, and Puget Sound in Washington state.”
The ultimate pre-emptive strike on America: EMP attack, cyber attack, currency wars and bandwidth blackouts
If you put the pieces of the puzzle together, what’s really shaping up here is a massive, multi-layered pre-emptive strike against America, an empire seen by the rest of the world as an insane bully that meddles with everything on the international stage. This first strike, combining the forces and expertise of both China and Russia, may consist of:
• High-altitude EMP detonation over North America, destroying regional power grids.
• A devastating currency war initiated by China announcing its own gold-backed currency while dumping U.S. Treasury debt on the open market.
• A Russian-led severing of undersea fiber optic cables.
• Russian-launched nuclear missiles targeting U.S. coastal cities.
• China-led assault on U.S. Navy warships using anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBMs).
• A cyber warfare attack on key U.S. infrastructure, including water delivery systems, nuclear power plants and the power grid.
As all this is going on, the Obama administration — a treasonous regime of criminals who have seized control of the U.S. government in an effort to destroy America from within — has been firing all the top military commanders who know how to survive such an assault. Instead of America’s military focusing on how to win wars, troops are now subjected to sensitivity training and the politically correct push for female troops on the front lines.
This is not fiction. Even the U.S. White House is now openly preparing for a massive EMP attack launched by China.
Dave Hodges also reports in this article about World War III:
Congress has now heard testimony that the United States is not ready for World War III while Russia is chomping at the bit to “get it on”. Further Congress has learned that Obama has been once again been badly outmaneuvered by Putin, the master chess player… the Chinese and the Russians are going to kick America’s rear end in the upcoming war.
Very disturbingly, there is a growing awareness, among Congress, that the United States cannot win World War III. There was only discussion, in these congressional meetings, as to whether, or not, the U.S. could prevail in World War III, not win the conflict.
To stay up to speed on all these events and how you might survive them, I strongly urge you to pay attention to the following websites:
TalkNetwork.com – the new talk radio network where I will be discussing this Trident missile launch during tomorrow’s show. It airs at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern.
Listen to my 4-part broadcast series on this entire story:
Sources for this article include:
Bishop Dr. Sammy Gitaari hailing from Nairobi, Kenya had some intriguing things to say about U.S. President Barack Obama, U.S. and African governments, and inspired living during an appearance at The Celebration Center in Marietta, OH today.
“I have told people since I came to America the last couple of years, Americans speak the language of the times. And the language of the time now in America is ‘Obama is bad’. I don’t know if he’s good or bad. It doesn’t bother me as much as an American. But I’ll tell you this, whether he’s bad or good, nothing change much. But you can change. You can change what you feel about yourself. You can change about what you do about your involvement. But about everything else, you can change what you say about your economy, what you say about your country. My problem is Americans are doing a bad job cursing their own country. I hear Christians used to bless a lot. We started to sing, ‘God bless America’. Now we sing, ‘This country is going to be judged’. If it is judged and you are inside it, you will also be judged. Change the prophecy. Prophecy good things to your land.” Bishop Gitaari then quipped, “I only got one ‘amen’. But, it’s probably enough.”
The audience broke into laughter.
Bishop Gitaari continues, “You see, I come from Africa where governments have not been a big blessing for us. And we have learned that our support is not necessarily governments. God can meet needs anywhere on earth. And God needs to be your source. I have no problem with you voting whoever you vote. But I’ll tell you something. Even when you vote, the majority may choose the fellow you didn’t like. And you don’t change your country, but you can change your language. You can slay your giants (aka, David and Goliath). You can live a great life. You can live a fulfilled life! You can live prosperous in a country that is a mess. In Africa I can tell you this. In Africa, we have the biggest problems in Africa. But I’ll tell you this, the biggest churches in the world are now in Africa….
Bishop Gitaari then said, “But you know what? It is the same country where we have the people we call Boko Haram who fight the government, who take children hostage, who do all the other evil. One side is really evil. The other side, God is moving at high speed. I’ll tell you this. You can enjoy what God has for you. Well, praise the Lord!….
Bishop Gitaari continued, “Speak life, speak blessing, speak power. Don’t speak what everybody is speaking. Praise the Name of the Lord. One of my responsibilities today while I’m here is I want us to bless America. I have a good word for you. Everybody has told you America is going to be judged. America is not a false prophet. America is not going to be judged. America is blessed. America has done a couple of wrong things. But God loves America. God loves America. Amen. God loves this country. God is working for this nation. He does not need all of you. He just need a David to pull down Goliath. The nation is good. You only have one Goliath. Don’t kill the nation for a Goliath. Kill Goliath, leave the nation. The nation is good. Everybody is not rotten. There are a few rotten people. Oh yea, everybody is not gay in America. Some are. There are the other ones in Israel, there are some. The Bible was not written for America. It was written for the people. We read it and it blesses us and everything we see here is in the Bible. This country is good. We have a few rotten apples. Let’s not kill what is good because there’s something rotten among us. If a snake got into my house, I will not burn my house. I’ll hunt down the snake and kill it. But my house is good.
Bishop Gitaari proceeds to pray a blessing over our land, “Father, in the Name of Jesus, I bless this great country. I bless America. In the Name of Jesus, I bless the economy of this land. I bless the politics of this land. I call Your Name to reign over the powers. I call Your Name to reign over White House. I call Your Name to reign over political systems and economic systems. We bless this land in the Name of Jesus. America does not belong to the Devil. It belongs to Jesus. We wrestle it from the hands of the enemy. In the Name of Jesus, this land will be a blessing to the nation. This land will be a blessing to our children. This land will be a blessing to the Kingdom of God. In the name of Jesus we bless the land. We bless the land. We bless the soil. We bless the economy. We bless this land. America is blessed. And it shall be blessed. Our children are not cursed. They are blessed. Our families are not cursed. They are blessed. They are blessed. Our houses are not cursed. They are blessed. Father, if You could save nations that was so evil because there was one or two men who are good, this country has millions of believing people. This nation has done sacrifices for the world. We will not give it to the Devil. In Jesus Name, we speak breakthrough and blessings for the land. In Jesus Name, we pray for healing for the economy of America. We pray for healing for the policies for this nation. We pray healing in the hearts of Americans who are wounded and frustrated in the Name of Jesus. And now I put a new song in Your children. A new song, a new song. Forget the former things, for behold I’m doing a new thing for this land. Hallelujah. The Bible will come into this nation and churches will grow. And missions will be experienced. And power will be all over the place. Glory to God, Amen.”
Bishop Gitaari then wrapped up, “Now, we prayed for the land. I want you to put a song of blessing into the land, alright? So don’t curse your land, bless it…Don’t join the enemy. Be the solution. Don’t be an Obama. Be a Christian. Be a Jesus. Don’t be part of the problem. Be the solution. Don’t be sick because there is sickness. Be healthy and an example of health. Don’t be broke because people are broke. Be wealthy, be prosperous, be successful. Give a new testimony. May the Lord see people here who can be the difference. Oh by the way, if our businesses will be different, maybe other people will want to be like us.”
In 1995, the Belpre (OH) Celebration Center planted a church in Kenya. Bishop Gitaari was the first pastor. He has since planted over 100 churches in Africa. The Marietta Celebration Center has supported “Pastor Sammy” since 2000. It has been 5 years since he last visited the States and he has been warmly welcomed.

NEW ORLEANS —New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu will travel to the Vatican to meet with Pope Francis with a select group of mayors, local governors and representatives of the United Nations for a two-day summit to discuss possible solutions to global issues.
The range of topics include climate change, human trafficking and sustainable development.
During the summit, Landrieu’s office said he will “offer formal remarks to the group about the challenges New Orleans has faced and how the city has become a model for resilience and sustainability.”
The mayor’s office said the city will continue this work by releasing in August one of the world’s first resilience strategies as part of its work with 100 Resilient Cities, which was pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation.
From July 21 – 22, the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences will host a workshop titled “Modern Slavery and Climate Change: The Commitment of the Cities” and a symposium titled “Prosperity, People, and Planet: Achieving Sustainable Development in Our Cities.”
“It is an honor and privilege to join His Holiness Pope Francis as he brings together this group of international leaders for an action-oriented gathering about opportunities and challenges facing local governments,” Landrieu said in a statement. “This type of honest, proactive collaboration will help create more peaceful, prosperous and resilient communities around the world.
